The new paradigm for radio technology is moving towards delivering energy through wireless means. This is driving industry to propose solutions for the mass market in a fast way. These approaches reflect the considerable growth in research and development of technologies for Wireless Power Transfer. In response, a new technical committee of the IEEE MTT Society (MTT-26) was formed in 2011 that focuses on wireless energy/power transmission, energy harvesting/conversion and related technologies. Following a successful meeting in Kyoto, Japan in 2012 (IMWSIWPT2012), a new conference on wireless powering, rotating between Europe, Asia and North America, started in Perugia, Italy in 2013 and was followed by WPTC2014 in Jeju, Korea and WPTC2015 in Boulder, USA. The 2016 WPT conference will be held in Aveiro, Portugal, supported by TC-MTT-26 and hosted by Instituto de Telecomunicações, Dpt. of Electronics, Telecommunication and Informatics (DETI) , Universidade de Aveiro. The meeting is intended to cover a broad range of areas related to devices, components, systems and applications of WPT across the electromagnetic spectrum.
